The Emperor Crow (エンペラークロウ Enperā Kurō) is a gigantic bird species that is known as the "Boss of the Skies". The species is classified as extinct within the Human World, however rumors still circulate that somewhere in the vast Gourmet World a few of them still live on. Kiss, Coco's Animal Partner is said to be the last remaining Emperor Crow in the Human World.[1]

Full grown Emperor Crows that hail from the Gourmet World are incredibly strong and as such it makes their species one of the most powerful in the world, and one unique Emperor Crow, dubbed the "Crow King", has strength so great that it is classified as one of the mighty Eight Kings, the eight most powerful beasts in the world.

The total population of this king species remains unknown, as well as if they are at risk of complete extinction or what caused the mighty species' population to dwindle.[2][1]


Kiss growth

Emperor Crows are giant corvid bird beasts resembling a jungle crow or giant crow with dark black feathers (with a purple hue in the anime) that have a very lustrous sheen and noble appearance. They have an incredible wingspan and the feathers on their wings are notably big and straight, the same can be said for their erect and sharp tail feathers. The anime also shows them as having a jay-like crest on their head, giving it a proud and regal appearance. It also has a long and sharp purple beak, thin black legs with purple talons and deep red eyes. An Emperor Crow can continue growing throughout its life, eventually reaching titanic proportions in size that even matches or exceeds the size of the gigantic Four Beast.

They exhibit the necessary intelligence to follow orders, should they be domesticated. They are also naturally cunning and brilliant with excellent instincts and battle knowledge, making them fearsome and relentless fighters. Emperor Crows are also omnivorous and can eat meats and fruits without a problem. Despite being native to Gourmet World, Emperor Crows also lived in the Human World, presumably weaker or younger individuals that had trouble surviving in Gourmet World, but in the end the Emperor Crows residing in the Human World eventually became extinct through unknown causes with the exception of one lone egg.[1]

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Four Beast facing Emperor Crow in the past

A true Emperor Crow battling the Four Beast in ancient times.

Emperor Crows are a notoriously strong breed of beast that can even survive in the Gourmet World and have a somewhat legendary status. They are incredibly fast fliers, capable of flapping their wings with great strength and speed and can ride air currents with absolute swiftness and precision, moving so fast that the human eye might not even be able to keep track of it, it can even move at the same speeds as a Battle Wolf and a Mother Snake, two of the fastest known animals in the world. As mentioned above, they are incredibly strong, with even a young Emperor Crow being capable of great feats of strength, such as being capable of piercing through near-impregnable surfaces by spinning its body around at incredible speeds while flying, basically turning itself into an unstoppable drill. A fully adult Emperor Crow from the Gourmet World can even fight on par with the Four Beast and can easily create a powerful windstorm around it with no effort. Kiss has also been shown to shed a large quantity of feathers to hinder his enemies sight, without affecting itself too much.

The strength of the Emperor Crows is so great, that one of its members has come to be known as one of the Eight Kings. Besides possessing immense strength, what truly set them apart from most other Gourmet World beast, is said to be their "sensitivity", which allows them to sense potential dangers, and has helped them survive mass extinctions. To this day, the Emperor Crows and their king are said to rule over one of the continents of the Gourmet World.



Emperor Crows were once a mighty species that could be found in the Human World and Gourmet World, and one Emperor Crow was so powerful it became known as one of the Eight Kings and its descendants would continue to rule over one of the continents of Gourmet World. The power of the Emperor Crows was so great, that even the ancient Four Beast would continue to remember its fearsome encounter with one for centuries to come.

At an unknown point in the past, the population of Emperor Crows within the Human World became extinct through unknown causes. Luckily the Emperor Crows of Gourmet World would continue to live on in their home continent, however the number of Emperor Crows still left is unknown.


Despite that the Emperor Crows of the Human World became extinct, one lone egg still remained which would end up being found by the Heavenly King, Coco who would raise the hatchling as a member of his own family. The young Emperor Crow was given the name Kiss and would aid its adoptive master in many tasks in battles as his Animal Partner.[1]

Cooking Festival ArcEdit

The King Emperor Crow, along with the rest of the Eight Kings sensed Toriko's rise in power after his battle with Starjun and knew that someday Toriko might surpass it and the other kings.


After Whale King "Moon" went on the move, the King Emperor Crow sensed this and was seen flying over Coco and Tylan, much to their surprise and awe.
